Q. Has an inflamed cyst that is keeping him from walking.Curious what drug the vet would prescribe?

A. Medication would depend on the originor nature of the mass and could not be predicted without a full physical exam and possibly even sampling of the contents to identify infections or underlying tumors which can develop in this age group and can appear identical to the naked eye
